The annual Chicago music festival is set to take place on the weekend of Friday, July 29. It will last for three days straight before coming to a conclusion on Sunday, July 31. This year is already expected to feature an unbelievable lineup, mainly because British legends Radiohead, who never tour, will be headlining on Saturday, July 30. They are just one noteworthy name out of many who are already scheduled to perform. Grab your tickets to individual days or catch all the action with a 3-Day Pass.
It’s the last week in July and that means that Chicago’s epic music festival is almost here! In just two days, Lollapalooza will kick off at Grant Park with an action-packed set list that includes headliners Paul McCartney, alt-J, The Weeknd, Alabama Shakes, and many others. If you are driving to the event, plan ahead for delays caused by heavy traffic. Concertgoers are encouraged to take public transportation the El to Monroe and State or Dearborn and State stops. Although the CTA has not yet posted any reroutes for busses, last year several were redirected to stop at Grant Park. If you don’t have your ticket to the show yet, there’s still time to get one. Tickets to Friday’s show start at just $94 with All-Weekend Passes starting at $331.
7/21/15 - While Lollapalooza is known for hosting some of the biggest names in music in one place during the span of one weekend, it is also known for giving some of the best up-and-coming artists some great exposure.

7/1/15 - When planning a three-day music fest, there are many aspects to consider. Top priority for Lollapalooza officials was securing names like Paul McCartney, Metallica and Florence and the Machine to headline the event, which will be held at Grant Park in Chicago. One of the other important things to plan is how to feed over 160,000 people over three full days. Planners just announced the list of food vendors, and it seems pretty solid! They selected the best Chicago restaurants to participate, and there is almost guaranteed to be something for everyone’s tastes. Pick up your tickets for the whole Lollapalooza weekend from us today!

Applications are due in by July 6 at the latest. Not a top tech student? We’ve still got you covered!
6/16/15 - With the lineup set for all three days of Chicago’s upcoming Lollapalooza music festival, some fans are having to make tough decisions about which acts to see.

On August 1, Sam Smith will perform at the same time as Metallica while Kid Cudi and Tyler the Creator will also share a time slot.
